    4.5.x compatibility

    OK, but again - it's only a matter of time. What happens if/when major functionality is added to Gallery/Downloads/Blogs/Pages? Even if Collabs still works, that functionality isn't going to be supported. Ever. And how long do you want to wait until one day things go wrong (which will eventually happen)? Do you think Collabs will still work with IPS 5? 6? If changes in PHP affect Collabs? Anyway, I'm not trying to tell people what to do - I'm really not. I've expressed my opinion here; I've washed my hands of every one of Kevin's apps and am never coming back. Just want to help put things in perspective as someone who was learned from experience. I'd suggest people who want to stay on start thinking of alternatives, anyway. Good luck!

    4.5.x compatibility

    Sometimes you just need to test and see what happens, that's why most of us creates sandbox work & test copies, to validate thinks like that... Anyway, it will be interesting to know if we stop paying for the licence will the downloaded and installed module still continue to work ? (like in V4.4.X for example)

    4.5.x compatibility

    Yes, the problem is that if you move forward assuming that there might be "no need to upgrade" without the dev saying so, you're playing an uninsured lottery with your site content. Waiting to see how long it will be before something goes wrong.

    4.5.x compatibility

    With respect, I think this is beside the point. Aside from my belief that it would be unrealistic to expect IPS to collaborate wtih any one developer (even with such powerful apps as these), my valid complaint has nothing to do with Kevin's relationship with IPS - it has to do with the failed obligation to his paying customers. There's nothing stopping him from continuing development on these apps and making them available for purchase from this site - which, after all, is dedicated to the very apps we're talking about! However, not only has he chosen not to do so - he has left his customers in the dark. And I get it - priorities change, people get new jobs, etc. - however, I should not have to leave 6 messages across different platforms to be told that there will no longer be any development whatsoever, after the last message he released was that critical compatibility upgrades would be made. If you don't believe me when I tell you what Kevin told me (he said "it just doesn't make sense at this point" or something to that effect), proceed at your own risk. I'm here only to seek help on uninstalling Collabs, which is the only thing that won't go quietly. And I just turned 50 and I'm not a developer and have no time to waste (it's a waste for me) on doing something that isn't my chosen vocation.

    4.5.x compatibility

    It is quite possible. It needs more time to test and investigate. Also, there are several applications created by Kevin, so probably not all of them will be completely compatible. Tests are needed.

    4.5.x compatibility

    nope, everything seems OK for me. Maybe another plug-in you're running ? Meanwhile I had the time to see that at least some of the rules managing members (in)activity are still working in the updated sandbox. So maybe there is no need to update (?). @liquidfractal : I think I understand Kevin's concern, he has developped a very useful set of modules that enhances quite well the basic IPB software. Unfortunately Invision seems to accuse him of all the possible bugs and issues appearing when one of those plug-ins are installed. In other words instead of collaborating with him, he seems deprecated and accused of all bad things that could happen. So how would you react in that situation ? But thankyou for the advice, maybe it is time to learn how to develop our own plug-ins...

    4.5.x compatibility

    I just wanted to notify everyone here that after 6+ messages across different sites and platforms, Kevin finally messaged me and essentially said that there will be no further updates of any kind. I advise you all to learn from my experience (since I paid a subscription fee not too long ago) and bail on all of these apps. Kevin is not concerned with notifying anyone or suggesting anyone stop paying him for nothing, so I suggest everyone reading this make other arrangements. While life happens and people's priorities change, I find Kevin's behaviour utterly unconscionable insofar as he shafted all of his paid subscribers and didn't bother communicating this to anybody. I won't be coming back.

    There should be an option to manually upload the xml/tar files of plugins and applications: When enabling the Rules, did you notice this kind of error in your ACP? 2S119/1 The CSRF protection key did not match. This may indicate a plugin or theme is out of date. Please contact technical support for more information.

    4.5.x compatibility

    Hi, Today I've tried to install the 4.5.2 version in a sandbox copy of my community. The big news is for the plug-ins updates you can only use their marketplace, knowing that Invision does not appreciate much the Rules engines (they seem to be used to say the bugs came from the rules when the plug-in is installed), it may not be updated very soon... (once I had a bug, then write to Invision support, they have sent me here telling me it was the plug-in rules fault, here I've been sent back to invision... The bug seems to have been solved "by itself" with new IPS updates (no rules updates meantime)... ) The good news is you can force the activation of the plug-in even without updating it. I've not yet tested to see if it works well (or only if it just works), but once activated there are no obvious bugs appearing...

    4.5.x compatibility

    Who knows? @Kevin Carwile doesn't seem interested in responding to the needs of his customers. I wouldn't recommend trying any of these apps with 4.5.x unless you have a test install. Quite frankly this is not inspiring confidence and as a customer I feel like I've been kicked to the curb. I have left update inquiries on every single one of Kevin's project threads and have heard nothing but crickets.

    4.5.x compatibility

    Hi guys, I've not yet tested 4.5.x. Does it means the current automatic rules version is no more compatible (at all) with this new release ?
  14. liquidfractal

    4.5.x compatibility

    As all of us here have paid (and have continued to pay) good money for renewing these apps, I'm disappointed that we aren't getting even a brief response with some idea as to when (if?) 4.5.x updates are happening. Some of us (myself anyway) rely on these apps for business.

    4.5.x compatibility

    I am waiting for an update as well...
  16. liquidfractal

    4.5.x compatibility

    @Kevin Carwile, I'm sure myself and several others here would like an update re: 4.5 compatibility (for this and your other apps), as some of us might be waiting on a major site upgrade to see when (if?) you plan to issue compatibility updates?
  17. liquidfractal

    CSRF error in IPS 4.5.0

    Yeah, you probably should have waited until a certified 4.5.x-compatible version is released...I assume it will be here? @Kevin Carwile, can you give us information on app compatibility updates?

    4.5.x compatibility

    As with your other apps, I'd like to know when APA will be made compatible with 4.5.x. Thanks

    4.5.x compatibility

    Hello, I'd like to know when the 4.5.x version of Rules (Full) will be released? Thanks!
  20. liquidfractal

    Has this project been abandoned?

    Cool...any ETA on the 4.5.x compatible release?
  21. liquidfractal

    4.5 Compatibility

    Yes, as a paying member I too would like to know when the 4.5.x-compatible release of this (and your other apps) will happen. Thanks!
  22. Hi, I went looking on the invision market place and couldn't find this application any more, I do hope it is not abandoned. We've just upgraded our community to Invision 4.5.0 and attempting to do anything with Points Economy 1.1.2 results in the following error being shown: I've noticed that when adjusting balances, the balance is correctly adjusted despite this error, but it would be nice to have this error resolved.

    Automatically modify topic's Prefix

    @alexis - Thanks for the answer, but Maybe if you see inside the plugin's structure, could you somehow figure it out? Just because I don't know that much PHP so I don't really know what code to extract/transform. Thanks in Advance - Zayon

    Automatically modify topic's Prefix

    We don't have such an action like "Modify content prefixes" within the Rules actions So the only way to accomplish your needs would be using an "Execute PHP code" as an Action, where you will need to find a right php code, which will correctly set the necessary prefixes... But what a code would it be, I don't know at all

    Check a member registered date

    I have several recurring scheduled actions on my board. One of them runs everyday with a bulk of 1000 members. And it works fine every night without skipping anyone or being stuck. The second one runs on a weekly basis each Friday afternoon, and it has 500 members in a bulk. And this action often stops running without any reason. So I had to increase the number of members to 1000 too. So both of them run faster now and without stopping. Probably the problems happen because of the high activity level on my board in the day time, so the high server load bothers my action to run successfully until the end. So I can suggest you to try to run your scheduled actions in the deep night or early morning. Another suggestion would be trying to assign some of your rules to another scheduled action, rather then running them under one scheduled action. - divide your rules into two scheduled action and run them one by one. (For example, start one scheduled action at 4.00 AM and the next one at 9.00 AM).

    Check a member registered date

    @alexis - Sorry for being damn late, but the thing worked, only one thing that I can't figure it out is how the rule works when you schedule it, because if I set it to 100, it is very slow and if I set it to 1000 it is very fast but not everyone gets the awards, it's like skipping users without any error/reasons. if you know by any chance how the schedule really works, let me know, please.
  27. Heya, I need help with the next thing: I want that in the specific subforum, a created topic, at the end of the event, that plugin sets the topic's Prefix (Not Tag), into something that I choose. So, let's say this as an example, a user completes a form, that application-form posts the topic inside the Design Requests forum, but there needs to be an "In Waiting" prefix added already to the topic, is this possible? I tested it with the tag, that works, but I need just the prefix, not the tag, I don't use tags there, I will show you what I mean. That is what I wanna do, I use only Prefixes without tags on this zone. There is the overview of the current rule. Rule: Add to In Asteptare Event: Topic has been created Conditions: Topic is in certain forums (Topic inside Cereri Lucrari) Actions: Modify content tags (Add In Asteptare for a Topic) Please help me out with this, this could be a massive changer for my community, because we have a lot of forms what we are in plan but we need this rule to work. Thanks in Advance - Zayon
